the future that lies ahead. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. in the coming weeks and months, out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. reducing our deficit, reforming our tax codes, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. we have more work to do. >> mitt romney won the traditional republican states, but ended up with only one swing state victory, taking north carolina. after reports that his campaign was questioning the results in ohio, romney finally emerged shortly before 1:00 a.m. eastern standard time to announce he had conceded the race. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. his supporters and his campaign also deserve congratulations. i wish all of them well, particularly, the president, the first lady, and their daughters. this is a time of great challenges for america, and i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. >> president obama will again face a divided congress, with democrats increasing their senate majority by one seat
, that is only way we will get congress, he needs a new economic time, and his skills and int -- intellect to use the bully pulpit which he has not done so far. neil: what do you think? >> a tax increase. neil: he will claim that is what -- >> he ran, nothing but for confrocontran seption, and a ner issues. neil: republicans go along. >> speaker and minority leader, they will be in bet pore sig, -- better position, when new congress is seated, everyone kicks a character and puts so much on the election. neil: that is their cover. lou: i don't think that john boehner has conservativ!! covert forefront of the republican party. neil: he is their biggest star. lou: he is only man with power. on part of the republican party, period, mitch mcconnell, is a minority leader of senate that does not approach him, discussion that simpson-bowles it was rejected by this president, and by the republican party, it is not a good plan. people need to understand this. it is not a plan that will be embraced by those who did not want to see higher taxes. the idea of that the president can speak to taxes and say, the
you both. we'll have you both back very soon. that does it for us today. make sure to join us tomorrow. right now it's time for "squawk on the street." >> whether i earned your vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you. you have made me a better president. with your stories and your struggles, i return to the white house more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> president obama wins a second term in the white house but of course now the hard part begins. can he and congress agree on how to avoid the fiscal cliff just 54 days from now? good morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with melissa lee, jim cramer, david faber. as you can see once again, down triple digits. a lot of news out of europe today as attention turns to greece and parliamentary vote there regarding austerity measures later on. democrats gaining seats in the senate. republicans maintaining control of the house. >> the issues that were a tossup are now certainties. we'll get cramer's take on how to align your
us that none of the vote has been counted. how can you say that mitt romney has won west virginia? well, all of our cbs news projections tonight will be based on the vote that has been counted and also our exit polling. we have been talking to voters in all of these states all day long as they've left the polling places and based on that exit poll information, we will project winners in these states and we will do so only when we have complete confidence in that projection. now let's look at that battleground states that we keep referring to tonight. these are the states that could go either way. these are the states that are going to tip the balance tonight for one candidate or the other. the polls have closed in a few of them, but many are still voting. in the state of virginia, we do not have a projection, but this is the tabulated vote as we see it so far. just 2% of the vote has been counted. mitt romney out with a lead there. this is a state that president obama won by 6% in 2008, but again, the mitt romney lead may or may not last because only 2% of the vote has been counte
that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties in this election and comprehensive immigration reform of some sort will have to be a priority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot
carried in 2008. >> walk us through some of the shadings here of an election desk making a call. because pennsylvania is so important, why say that it's too early and yet also say that the president has the lead? >> because you get raw vote coming in that gives you an indication of how the state is going. you have exit polls which give you an indication of how the state is going. the people in our decision desk who are very expert at this, very experienced at this, they require a very high level of confidence by matching the exit polls to what they see in key precincts and the actual vote before they're willing to say we won't get a surprise say a huge vote in the western part, more conservative part of pennsylvania for mitt romney overcoming the lead that president obama would develop in philadelphia and counties around philadelphia. they're going to be absolutely certain at an almost 100% confidence level before they'll call any of those states even if a candidate stakes out an early lead. >> thanks very much. we'll come back to you soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston i
. better chances east and southeast of us. then for the drive home some rain and wet snow in spots and west of town you will be dry most of the day. in fact most of this nor'easter coming up the coast i think west of 95 not that much moisture. in the 30s now and mid 30s in many areas and low 30s in the mountains to around 40 in d.c.. warm spots are 42. but the radar now low pressure coming up coast here through north carolina and virginia and closer to long island now back to southern jersey and even our neck of the woods. one thing is that isn't reaching the ground yet. temperatures today maybe make the low 40 end zone spots but late this afternoon this evening some minor buildup on the grassy surfaces especially east and northeast of town. in baltimore winter weather advisories have been posted. it is 6:00 a.m. time to check in with monika with timesaver traffic. >>> unfortunately ugly on the northbound side of i-95. but look at all the red behind me, going about 16 miles per hour getting up to triangle and dumfries an accident after route 610 blocks the left side of the road. then beyond
out an electoral victory. we'd like to welcome everybody who's joining us now on c-span2. if you're on c-span 1, you have to switch over. if you had a friend that didn't switch over, run over there, pound on that door. you can join us at politico.com, there's an e-mail that will come directly to us onset. we're going to bring you into the conversation. it's 10:00, the polls have closed in most of the states that will determine the outcome of this election. i would say if you wanted to step back and where do we stand at 10:00 on election night, the big headline, the one headline we know for sure, joe donnelly won the senate seat for democrats in indiana, a huge and what unexpected victory for democrats, makes it almost impossible for republicans to win back the senate. we have declared long ago that the house will stay in republican hands, it now looks like the senate will stay in democratic hands. so it's all down to the presidential race about whether or not we have a status quo, divided government in washington. the early states that have been called are very much looking in ba
into taking a break. [chuckles] >> listen, we are so honored to have all of you with us here tonight. we greatly appreciate you spenning the evening with the fox newschannel, not just tonight, but throughout the days and weeks preceding tonight and those that will follow, as we keep giving you fair and balanced coverage and bringing the perspective and context. that will do it for us in america's election headquarters. stay tuned for complete analysis tomorrow on america live with yours truly. >> with me, on special report. as 6:00 p.m. eastern. it's an honor and a pleasure to have you along with this ride. it has been quite a ride, hasn't it? >> it has been great working with you. >> you too. a lot of fun. >> iowa, remember that? wait! you pointed out, it's coming again. >> we continue now can jame -- jamie colby and gregg jarrett. i'm a conservative investor. i invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world bursting with opportunities. in
for us, it's written by us. >> three more days and we can get to work building our country. >> in two days america's got a choice to make. >> one final push and we'll be there. tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> it's up to you! you've got the power! campaign 2012, bob schieffer, norah o'donnell and john dicker son with analysis. anthony mason reports on exit polls. byron pitts follows congress. from cbs news election headquarters, here again is scott pelley >> pelley: good evening. it's a state-by-state battle tonight for electoral votes. the magic number, you'll hear it all night, is 270. you'll also be hearing a lot tonight about the battleground states. nine states where the election is so close they could swing either barack obama or mitt romney. those are the nine battleground states. the polls have closed in only one of them, virginia, and the race there we do not have enough information yet to make a projection in the state of virginia. bob schieffer is, this is -- you've been covering presidential elections since 1972. >> not 57 of them! (laughs) >> pelley: quite a few, bob.
. and unemployment and people living off the system that don't need to live off the system. because i used to work with the legislation. i was a lobbyist. with home health. and i got to see exactly what it was all about. if the people don't get out and vote and don't get out and voice their opinion, then they have nobody to blame but themselves. they cannot just sit back and say, okay, it is alright, but i am too lazy to get out and vote. you have to speak because every vote counts. it does not matter what color you are or who you are. it did not matter to me if obama got in office or mitt romney, as long as it was for the people. >> that was from mississippi. we want to show you the scene at the ronald reagan building. this is where the national journal will be holding their event "by the numbers." it should be beginning in just a minute. it will be led by ronald brownstein, a longtime contributor. elaine chao, former secretary of labor, will be participating. as you can see, it looks like they are almost getting ready to go. as we watched the room, we will take this call from leesburg, va. on ou
seventh term. lou: such a remarkably able u.s. senator. neil: he moved a lot of positions, he moved gingerly to the right, he cornered his tea party opponent and the winner of the republican primary. that is a seat that stays in republican hands. it could mean that republicans and in worse shape than what we think. lou: given what we have seen, i am not surprised -- in missouri and indiana, this is a campaign organization. let's be straight forward. the strategy was sometimes incomprehensible. it amounted to less than the two plan to take over the senate. this is before things went from bad to worse the. neil: yes, picturing leadership changes here. lou: you absolutely could. there would be those in the senate, in particular, those who would demand changes. the language has become a little tired. the strategy has become a little less provocative and deep than it should be. i'm not talking about the presidency. i'm talking about terms of being competitive in the united states. neil: lou dobbs, thank you so much. we have jeff and columbus, ohio. how does it look? >> yes, i can hear yo
brown. democrats hope that this time, the turn out for obama will help to put warren in the u.s. senate. neil: amazed with that money that linda mcmahon put up. they just told me a lot of those fights are rigged. peter thank you very much, peter barnes,. >> we go to robert wolf, chairman, a big supporter of barack obama, how do you technology is going so far. >> you know, i think as predicted there are no surprises yet, we're waiting for key swing states we're optimistic with our stronghold, ohio, wisconsin pennsylvania, iowa. so we're confident that it will be a good night for the president. neil: are you surprised that -- i guess we always knew from a lot of polls it would be a fight. but for the president, who has been champions what he says is an improving economy, he is really on a fight of his life hire. with a guy who early on in the race, tried to say really had no business, running for president, did not had a sort of a callous business disposition, but as numbers come in, this is a 50/50 call almost. >> i think no surprise that -- it will be 50 plus or less one way or the othe
's get straight to john harwood at the maproom to give us more color on what we're seeing as the most recent poll closings. over to you, john. >> we're almost completely closing the map of coloring in the map of all the states we knew in advance where they were going to faull. the only state where polls have not closed yet is the state of alaska. we're very confident mitt romney is going to win that based on polls before the election. so we're really waiting for those seven battleground states that haven't been filled in yet. again, to reiterate, as we've talked about before, if president obama wins the state of florida this race is over. he's going to be re-elected for a second term. but if mitt romney wins it, he's got to also win north carolina, he's got to win virginia, where it's very close, and he's got to win the state of ohio, which is really a big one hanging out there. president obama is hoping to check mate mitt romney by winning the state of nevada, where he had been favored going into election day, and the state of ohio where he'd held a persistent lead in the polls. obam
us a tweet @cspanwj. you can make a comment on our facebook page,.,com/cspan. and if you make the comment under the posting that says the president has been reelected. your thoughts, we will get to those quickly. here are some updated results. >> but this take a look at how you want. according to ap exit polls, hispanics and women carried him to victory in that state. in colorado, 77% of voters said the economy top of their list, but one and two blend george w. bush for the economy. and i welcome it shattered their 2008 early voting record -- in iowa, they shattered their 2008 early voting record. and the youth vote in wisconsin may have played a role. 8-29 year-olds favre obama. and ohio, more voters and the state than any other state said governor romney's policies would favor the rich. and the auto bailout played a big role in that state as well. moving on to florida, this one is not called yet 4 obama 1 mitt romney -- for obama or mitt romney. north carolina, the economy had a big impact. and also three out of five of voters said they would want some or all of the health-c
to come into office, use his victory as an opportunity to make compromises with republicans. >> apparently all you have to do is show up in a nice suit, give free health care, save the auto industry and kill bin laden and that old girl will put out. >> the senate battle in massachusetts, elizabeth warren beat incumbent republican scott brown. >> wisconsin, tammy baldwin has become the first openly gay candidate to win a u.s. senate seat. >> percent certainty? >> 99.95%. >> we have to be careful about calling things, i'd be cautious about intruding in this process. >> well, folks -- >> hold on. >> i worked for the guy that balanced the budget. you came in and squandered it and now you're complaining to me? >> it's never too early to talk about the next one. right? >> and you know that somebody's planning it. >> two years, $3 billion and we are clearly in the same [ bleep ] place we were when it started. >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." america wakes up this morning almost exactly where we were four years ago. president barack obama wins a second term, republicans hold the house, and democ
, the american people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. and we know in our hearts that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. >> good morning. and welcome to a special edition of "morning joe." it's wednesday, november 7th. the morning after the election. we're live from historic stud studio -- here's willie -- in rockefeller center here in new york city in front of a great, very awake studio audience. they're wide awake. what's wrong with you people? >> what's wrong with you people? >> have you been up all night? >> unbelievable. >> all right. well, there's just a little news to report this morning. president obama has won a second term in the white house. >> what? you're kidding me. >> this is huge. go ahead. >> around 11:15 last night, the networks put the biggest swing state of the election, ohio, in the president's column. pushing him over the 270 electoral vote threshold. and at this hour, the president has 303 electoral college votes to mitt romney's 206. florida,
. we'll get into the particulars of virginia. how it matters and what it could tell us about the rest of the nation. the implications are many as virginia goes, well, is models for the rest of the nation may go. then there is the state of georgia. the polls have just closed there at 7:00 eastern and it, too, is too close to call. but then there is the state of indiana. "fox news" now projects governor mitt romney will win the state of indiana which president obama did win four years ago. that's a turnover. 5% of the votes in but the model suggests to us it is good gh to mitt romney according to the "fox news" decision team has won the state of indiana. "fox news" also projects governor romney will win in the bluegrass state kentucky with 4% of all precincts reporting. 2/3 of all voters are voting "fox news" ney and projects romney wins kentucky. outh too close to call in s carolina. none of the precincts are can project t we president obama will win in the state of vermont. six states where the polls have just closed. we've made calls in two of them. and in the others we can't yet mak

president pledged >> you elected us to focus on your jobs not ours. and in the coming weeks and months, i am looking forrd the challenges wean only solve together. 523rd day of hishan 90 minutes networks projected the vior presidentialace. >> like soany of y paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all7 to this campaign. i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes toea ferent nation chose anothereao ann and i join with you to earnestly(= pr for him. he called on his party tocc the outcome of the=d race but n as a scitizen. >> at a time like this we can't risk bickering political posturing. outhe aisle to do the people's work. and we citizens also havto rise to the ocsi>> interesting ri party is the spgeaker of the house, john ner. it will be interesting to watch how the fis whe things sta next year on january 5th when theres congress. in the end after a $election, w something looks an awful lot likeรท thewashington. after fighting tooth and nail for 18 months, the president is in democrats keep control of the senate and not only that may ga gund. only losin
. but hey. voters proved me wrong. >> yep. >> they did. >> ha will the of us thought that going into last night. and thankfully i was thankful that we got up and we had a decision and didn't have to do this like we did in 2000. kristin we'll see you. >> president obama already reached 270 votes before he finally was declared the winner in virginia. >> and part of the reason the vote counting took so long in virginia is because the lines were huge. at one polling spot in dumfries, voters waited up to four hours, that's pretty cool. and only had six voting machines. that's probably one of the reasons why. wow. >>> voting for 20 years and never missed an selection. and wasn't going to miss this one just because some bureaucrat screwed up. >> this is the longest line that i've ever seen. >> i think more than a few people shared that sentiment. some people left without voting but most people we spoke to stuck it out and cast their ballot and they said it was worth it. >>> well, however, that big virginia turnout did not lead to a very long night for the senate candidates. >> two form ergo fors
va would go is way too early. north carolina is important for us tonight. north carolina has been close throughout the evening and still is. 23% of precincts reporting. at some point we will have a call here, but not now. the state of missouri also to close to call, closing in just the last few minutes. a state of missouri to close to call in the early going, and the state of tennessee, the volunteer state with less than 1% of precincts reporting -- again, it looks lopsided. it is not. a number of other states just close. new jersey, oklahoma -- new jersey will be interesting throughout the night. electoral votes there. states that have closed where we made calls, which were absolutely expected. look at the red zone in dixie down there appear in mississippi, alabama, georgia, south carolina. we called south carna and little while ago. mississippi and alabama solidly red. oklahoma as well. if you look of the eastern seaboard, no surprises there. president obama right now with a 78 electoral votes. governor romney with 71 electoral votes. now florida has closed. as you know, we have
election headquarters. great to have you with us. all day long we've been watching grandmothers, first-time voters, rich people, poor people, blue collar workers, all the people who believe in america going to the polls, every state of our union today joining together at the ballot boxes, and we will be bringing you the results. we are here to tell you who won, why throughout this evening and what's next. it's your voice as we've been saying and your vote tonight. >> diane, it has been a long, bitter and expensive race. deadlocked most of the way and revealed an america divided in so many ways. tonight, all of you are going to tip the balance. >> and now we are ready to begin because we have three projections to make because the polls have closed in six states and we are ready to go. here it is. indiana, this state has switched, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to take indiana. kentucky, this is a very red state and governor romney has taken kentucky, as well, tonight. and vermon
about a recession in europe, and a big concern overall about the health of the u.s. economy. of the stocks that are actually up today, and there are a few, they are related to healthcare and providing healthcare facilities, because of the healthcare law that is going into effect. so we'll keep an eye on the markets and everything that is happening now. we have brand-new stories and breaking news this hour. jon: develop shrink deeper into president obama's historic victory. what fox news exit polls tell bus the make up of today's american voters, plus now they are stuck together, will the president and the republican-led house embrace some kind of bipartisan effort to keep us from going over that fiscal cliff? problems, like millions of jobless americans to iran's nuclear ambitions, what does the president's re-election mean for our nation's future at home and overseas? it's all "happening now." it is over, time for some election reflex and th rereflection hours after the nation voted to give president obama a second term. good morning i'm jon scott. you were up late. jenna:
the largest block of senate women in u.s. history. and the house stays in republican hands. the fiscal cliff looming for congress. is speaker boehner ready to make a deal with the president and democrats? can the country afford another missed opportunity? good morning from new york city. it is the day after, wednesday, november 7, 2012. we have a special two-hour edition of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. ahead this morning, senator elect angus king of maine. who he will kau can cuss with. maggie hassan of new hampshire. new york congressman steve israel as well as my man that i like to talk about in the future of the republican party, mike murphy. righto my first reads. it took president obama exactly 12 minutes longer to win his second term than a first one. we called the 2000 race at 11:00. this time at 11:12 p.m. we're not even 12 hours removed from that moment yet and it's clear that the second obama term will face enormous challenges in trying to resolve the country's if iscal future and create a governing coalition to make that happen in washington but, first, let's look at how t
strategist. it's great to have you all here. i know it's been a long night for so many of us. we still have so much to talk about. ron, i want to start with you. the fact the president won this and did so with the decisive and clean victory. that can't be questioned. the battleground states coming through really especially in ohio. when we break down the numbers and show latinos that showed up, the younger votes that showed up for the president. everybody that came out, was it romney's to lose because the republican party wasn't able to coalesce women and minorities to say we have a candidate for you to choose. >> absolutely. i think that clearly he was pushed too far to the right. it didn't work. but i think the economy at the end of the day was the real issue. and that was obama's to own. he grabbed the issue of the middle class. he owned it. romney made mistake after mistake on that front. the 47% comment. i mean, any number of issues there. and the latino voters, the young women voters. these are people who are very concerned about the future of their jobs, of income growth of the middl

're all tense. i use the phrase optimistic today. how are things in the obama camp. >> i think there is a bounce for the obama camp officials. they seem to like the numbers they have seen so far. they've seen turnout in virginia and new hampshire that is higher than 2008. so that would be very good news for the obama campaign. but we mentioned some of the problems and michael referred to some of the problems in philadelphia. here to talk us through some of that is melanie, a spokesperson for the democratic national committee. i under that the dnc filed a lawsuit in philadelphia and then with grew it. what's going on. >> we're encouraged by their decision to print additional paper ballots and remember them to 200 polling places in phil fillphiladelphia. we were prepared to take action there. we withdrew the action. we didn't have to do it. our goal is to make sure that every who shows up and wants to vote is able to do so. it looks like that is going to happen. >> a lot of problems in philadelphia because of the chaos, confusion people told you must have an i.d. or you're turned

"everything bad is good for you: how today's popular culture is actually making us smarter", he writes the great unsung story of our culture today is how many welcome trends are going up. anthony in san antonio, texas. you are on booktv with steven johnson. >> caller: good morning, mr. johnson. let me just say what a distinct pleasure it is to talk to you. i want to say in 2005, i was a counselor educator and i taught a continuing education class counselors throughout the san antonio community. believe me, i used your book, the looks were bewilderment and total aggravation. the title freak them out. learning is prefigured. the kids were teaching me. i didn't know anything about computers. how are we going to use it to guard against plagiarism? this had nothing to do with it. the resistance, as the time went on, and when i wrote my little blurb on amazon at 11 responses, only two people agreed with it. so this resistance among practitioners had to be tremendous. when the little kid wrote the iphone initiative about two or three years ago, and i played that in one of my classes, the ones
keilar's with us at the white house. you were at the president's campaign headquarters. you did excellent job covering what was going on last night. at what point did they finally realize this was going to be an excellent night for the president? >> reporter: you know, they seemed pretty confident early on. they seemed relaxed. and they seemed calm. but obviously, i think, they were waiting ultimately until ohio, until they could really breathe a sigh of relief because there were obviously a lot of concerns about the recounts. but i think they were looking and seeing the margins that they were winning in some of those battleground states. and they felt like it was going to be a good night for them. remember, we heard even days before and yes, it was spin, but it turned out to be true from some of the president's top campaign advisors -- pardon the wind here at the white house -- they thought they were going to win the electoral vote and the popular vote and there was some folks wondering about that. but i also think, wolf, now you're moving on very much to reality. and that's so much what
live team coverage starts right now. >>> thanks for joining us on this election night, i'm brian bolter. >> i'm sean nancy. >> we're going to take the national vote. mitt romney has 50% of the vote, barack obama 48% of the vote. none of that really matters though, because as you well know, it all comes down to the electoral college and that magic number, 270, which we're going to talk about extensively. >> virginia is a key battleground state. you can see right now. with 73% of the precincts reporting, still a very close race. >> democrat congressman senator jim web is vacating. it's been like this all night. 73% of the presents reporting george allen slightly in the lead over tim kaine. we're watching those northern virginia counties being countedment we know a lot of those will probably end up in tim kaine's column. >> let's move over to maryland now, where ben cardin is easily winning reelection tonight. also tonight, you can see he won handily there, 58% of the vote to 25% of the vote. >> in the house house district 6 race, roscoe barlet fighting for his seat. after it was redrawn,
on another big story as well this morning. can you probably see the flags moving pretty briskly behind us. that is a sign of what's to come as nasty weather, a nor'easter bears down on already storm-ravaged parts of this east coast. al is live along the new jersey shore with what we can expect. >> all right. we want to get right to our top story, the election results. nbc's kristen welker had a late night covering president obama's campaign, and she joins us this morning from chicago. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah. well, president obama is waking up as a two-term president. a lot of people said it wouldn't be possible because of the stagnant economy, but he was able to rally his core constituents, women, african-americans, young voters works turned out in force to send him back to the white house. a triumphant president obama walked out to a jubilant crowd to claim victory, his wife and children by his side as he savored his hard fought re-election. >> a long campaign is now over. and whether i earned your vote or not, i have listened to you. i h
, this is a red state, so take us through the map now, george. >> we see still everyone -- every state coming in basically as we expected of the red states have been met for a long time. the blue states still blue but some disappointment there for governor romney could not pick up wisconsin as sharyn said, could not pick up pennsylvania and the big battlegrounds that has gotten most of the attention and money from the campaign still out there, but president obama with a lead in ohio, holding on to a small lead in florida, virginia, north carolina, too close to call right now. i do want to look -- we've gotten a number from our exit poll that i told everybody to watch at the beginning of the night, the white share of the electorate. back in 2008, 74% of the electorate was white. look at our exit poll tonight, shows that number has gone down to 72%, matthew dowd, you see that there, 72% of the electorate white according to our exit poll right now, a massive move continuing a trend of the last 30 year, but that was a trend that the romney campaign was hoping to buck. >> yeah, that was the trend
